An interview with Justine Namaalwa of Makerere University

An interview with Justine Namaalwa of Makerere University Forest tenure reform implementation in Uganda: What lessons for policy and practice? In this interview, Justine Namaalwa of the Department of Environment, School of Forestry, Environment and Geographical Sciences at Makerere University in Uganda, points out that despite forest tenure reform, there are still no formerly recognized gazetted community forests in the country because of the onerous process for registration. As a result, community forests in the country are informal, organized and managed by communities, with district-level permission. Without formal recognition, the communities have no tenure security. This video is part of a series on the implementation of forest tenure reform in Uganda, which emerged from the Prospective Participatory Analysis (PPA) that examined reform implementation in the country as part the Global Comparative Study on Land Tenure Reform.

Gender - Forest tenure reform implementation in Uganda (Part 4 of 5)

Gender Forest tenure reform implementation in Uganda: What lessons for policy and practice? (Part 4 of 5) This video – the fourth in a five-part series on the implementation of forest tenure reform in Uganda – looks at the gap between forest policy that aims to secure tenure rights of women, and the need to involve women in decision-making in the reform process to ensure that they benefit from it. This is the major outcome of the Prospective Participatory Analysis (PPA) that examined tenure reform implementation in Uganda, as part the Global Comparative Study on Land Tenure Reform. PPA stakeholders and Esther Mwangi, principal scientist with the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), offer insights into the importance of prioritizing gender in tenure reform.

Advances in forest tenure reform in Uganda

Advances in forest tenure reform in Uganda The 2003 National Forest and Tree Planting Act in Uganda opened the door for forest tenure reform in the country, decentralizing forest management and according new rights to districts, communities and individuals. It also made provisions for community forests and collaborative forest management, and saw the creation of supporting institutions to implement the reforms. In this video, diverse stakeholders offer their perspectives on how these institutions are functioning, on reform progress and how it could be improved. It is part of a series on the implementation of forest tenure reform in Uganda, which emerged from the Global Comparative Study on Land Tenure Reform, led by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR).

Customary rights and forest tenure reform in Uganda

In northern Uganda, forests are owned and managed communally by customary institutions. Since the 10-year civil war in the area ended in 2007, communities have been working to reorganize those institutions, and the national government has introduced tenure reforms to strengthen the participation of community groups in managing forest land. In this video, stakeholders in northern Uganda provide insights into the process of forest reform, and community representatives recount their experiences of trying to formalize customary forest rights. The video is part of a series on the implementation of forest tenure reform in Uganda, which emerged from the Global Comparative Study on Land Tenure Reform, led by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR).

An interview with Hillary Agaba, Uganda National Forestry Resources Research Institute Forest tenure reform implementation in Uganda: What lessons for policy and practice? In this interview, Hillary Agaba, director of Uganda’s National Forestry Resources Research Institute, speaks about the importance of forests to local livelihoods, the importance of community access to forest resources, and of research on the implementation of land and forest tenure reforms that affect these. These, he argues, can help address the crucial issues of deforestation and forest land degradation, while helping to ensure sustainable forest management and on-farm technologies that reduce pressure on forests. The video is part of a series on the implementation of forest tenure reform in Uganda, which emerged from the Global Comparative Study on Tenure Reform, led by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR).

An interview with Levi Etwodu, National Forests Authority, Uganda Forest tenure reform implementation in Uganda: What lessons for policy and practice? In this interview, Levi Etwodu, director of Natural Forests at Uganda’s National Forests Authority, speaks about the importance of working with a cross-section of groups and institutions at various levels, both governmental and non-governmental, and even outside the forest sector, such as agriculture, to implement forest reforms and manage forest land. The video is part of a series on the implementation of forest tenure reform in Uganda, which emerged from the Global Comparative Study on Land Tenure Reform, led by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR).

Women’s rights and forest tenure reform in Uganda

Uganda’s forest policy of 2001 expresses the government’s commitment to gender equality. This includes increasing women’s security of tenure over forest resources with forest tenure reforms. Various stakeholders offer their perspectives on how forest tenure reforms are affecting women, and ways that women’s participation, benefits and secure access to land and trees can be improved, given cultural realities. The video is part of a series on the implementation of forest tenure reform in Uganda, which emerged from the Global Comparative Study on Land Tenure Reform, led by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and facilitated in Uganda by the Association of Uganda Professional Women in Agriculture and Environment.

Achieving tenure security in Uganda

Achieving tenure security in Uganda To address the problem of forest loss, the government of Uganda embarked on a process of tenure reform, which began with a new forest act in 2003. It aimed to improve sustainable forest management, the livelihoods of forest-dependent communities, and the national economy. The reform involved a variety of tenure regimes for different contexts. Diverse stakeholders provide their views on how the reform process is progressing, the main challenges, and how these could be resolved to improve forest tenure security. This video is part of a series on the implementation of forest tenure reform in Uganda, which emerged from the Global Comparative Study on Land Tenure Reform, led by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR).

Capacity Strengthening Forest tenure reform implementation in Uganda: What lessons for policy and practice? (Part 5 of 5) This video – the fifth in a five-part series on the implementation of forest tenure reform in Uganda – explores the second major outcome from the Prospective Participatory Analysis (PPA) that examined reform implementation in the country as part the Global Comparative Study on Land Tenure Reform. This outcome, according to Esther Mwangi, principal scientist with the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), is the limited capacity of government officials to implement reform to secure tenure for local communities. Mwangi and PPA stakeholders offer insights on how to build capacity for implementation reform, and examples of instances where government support has been successful.

In this interview, Bob Kazungu, senior forest officer in the Forestry Sector Support Department of the Ugandan Ministry of Water and Environment, provides insights into some practical tools used to build forest reform research in his country, particularly for forest-dependent communities. Particularly effective, he says, is the Prospective Participatory Analysis (PPA) that was undertaken as part of the Global Comparative Study on Land Tenure Reform, led by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and facilitated by Association of Uganda Professional Women in Agriculture and Environment.
